I still get this error when remastering from 1.0.5final - if I had OpenOffice to try & make a chubby:

"mkdir: cannot create directory '/new_root': No space left on device"

which then causes all sorts of failures through the boot sequence..

Seems like the size is a problem.
It tells me to set ramdisk_size=12614 in isolinux.cfg since it's 12288 max
I tried this but to no avail.
I looked at Chubby 1.0.4 & that doesn't have any such entry in isolinux.cfg.
It doesn't seem to have much bigger files either:
Chubby_1.0.4: 6.8Mb image.gz & 92Mb usr_cram.fs
1.0.5+OO.o PupGet via PCCC: 7.2 Mb image.gz & 74 Mb usr_cram.fs

Am I doing something wrong?
How did you create the real Chubby?
- via unleashed, I guess?
- so this is probably my only option...

Would be good to know what's going on here, though...

When I created Chubby 1.0.5 I made the ramdisk_size=13312

Run /usr/sbin/createpuppyonline from the commandline to
see any error messages when you build the iso file.

It seems that the script is calculating a too-small size for the
ramdisk.

It fails even with ramdisk_size=15000

I see that the sizes of the 1.0.5 Chubby (which I'm seeding now) are:
image.gz 7.4Mb
usr_cram.fs 87Mb

What determines the size needed for the ramdisk?
Just size of image.gz?
- uncompressed, rather than compressed?
I see that the 1.0.5 chubby has an uncompresed image of 13631 - same size as ramdisk.
My failed image was 12916, so the calculation seems correct...but a ramdisk_size of 15000 is insufficient Confused Can it be too large as well as too small?

Remaster from remaster in 1.0.5 final exhibits the same behaviour as above:
Can't remove any more applications - you select them, but they don't download from Unleashed repo & don't get removed.

I'm having the same problem. I added xine extra codecs, nmap, monkey web server dot pup, and abiword us-dict dot pup. I added a couple printers using the printer wizard and ran the ethernet wizard. Then I ran PCCC. everything seemed to go fine, it said to set ramdisk_size = 13147. I set it to 18000. When I tried to boot the CD it gave the message "/new_root': No space left on device". I'll try it again, maybe I had a typo with the ramdisk_size or could I have made it too big? I put the ramdisk_size on a line right before the line with "say 2 no APCI ....".
Almost forgot,on the boot screen, right before the line with the boot options it posts this message twice "Missing parameter in config file."

Okay, I'll see if I can chase this bug down within the next couple of days.

Okay guys,
try this one!

It should correctly resize the ramdisk.

Also:
When the script asks you to edit isolinux.cfg with "ramdisk_size="
be sure to insert it for every boot option, in the same line as the
PFILE parameter.

let me know if it works.

ok, will get this script tested.

re: the 'remaster from remaster' issue, I'm pretty sure I've licked it!
It's because I've removed rxvt (to replace it with mrxvt)
Placing a symlink from rxvt to mrxvt has resolved it Smile

It was affecting the whole Pupget package manager, running from CLI (as you mentioned in another thread) allowed me to debug it...

Thx,

Spoke too early :/

Pupget now works fine (with the symlink) but PCCC exhibits the same behaviour when doing 'remaster from remaster'.

Running 'createpuppyonline' from the CLI, I see the following output:
ls: /root/.packages/*.files: No such file or directory
/tmp/rettags.txt has all the tags (package names) chosen to be in Puppy.
/usr/sbin/createpuppyonline: line 589: 3372 Terminated xmessage -center -bg "orange" -title "Puppy Custom CD" -buttons "" "Processing package choices, please wait..."

The /tmp/<package>.files are the DotPups installed into my remaster, which work fine.
- no problems in this area, so 'error' can safely be ignored, I think.

My guess as to why PCCC fails to download new packages scheduled for removal is either:
mkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt/home/puppy/puppy-unleashed/rootfs-complete/root/.packages': File exists

OR

cp: cannot stat `/mnt/home/puppy/puppy-unleashed/rootfs-complete/root/*': No such file or directory


I'm going to do another remaster from fresh, so I'll capture the output from that one...

Running createpuppyonline from the commandline spits out lots of messages
that may seem like errors but they aren't.

The important thing is, the script fixes the size of image.gz problem.
Previously, you would have seen lots of error messages about not enough
room, "No space left on device".
So, previously the iso file itself was corrupted, that is, files missing from
image.gz.

I successfully created a iso with OO.
I didn't have any problem with downloading packages that are to be removed
-- that's a different problem, and so far I can't reproduce it.

Barry,
I tried the script. That took care of the out of space problem, but now I'm getting this:

Mounting /proc: Can't find /proc in /etc/fstab
Pausing for 60 seconds...
Remounting root rw: can't find / in /etc/fstab
Pausing for 60 seconds...

I tried it twice, same result both times. I'm still adding these options to the 105 image: xine extra codecs, nmap, Abiword US dictionary Dotpup, Monkey web server Dotpup and now the "SP1" patch.

thanks,
kirk
